Close associates of mine may have heard me rant on the subject of randomly placed quotation marks. These bother me more than most improper uses of English; I think this is because I can't figure out how they are used. A semicolon where a comma should go (or vice versa) I can understand; but what makes someone put a word or phrase in quotes which is neither being quoted or used sarcastically? Random quotes are to me as the Sun is to Gollum. They burns us, we tell you. Burnsssss usss.

Fortunately the Gallery of ''Misused'' Quotation Marks is able to make me laugh out loud at the reader-submitted examples of "misused" "quotation marks", complete with snarky comments. Joy joy.

Those are funny, but there were "so much" of them that I didn't even get half-way...
